Pretorius reaction to ‘cult’ accusations

In response to a media query from Hermanus Times that sets out the various allegations about the workings of his religious group, Johan Pretorius provided Hermanus Times with the following statements: :

“We would like to thank Hermanus Times for giving us the opportunity to respond to this latest attack of disinformation, lies and half-truths. Not knowing what the exact viewpoint or tone of this article would be as we trust Hermanus Times will abide by objective reporting protocols, and not be used as another pawn in this slander case.

“To the hundreds of people who cross our paths daily, and truly can and have attested to the contrary of these allegations, we would like to thank you for your support and prayers, and we encourage you not to be dismayed by the intensifying persecution of Christians right across the world at the moment. These things have been told us beforehand by our Lord Jesus Christ.

“To all our fellow believers, brothers and sisters in Christ, abide in the word of God, and may He keep you and bless you with everlasting life.” – The Accused

“Concerning the gospel, we believe in the Word of God. We are not an ‘elite’ group believing we’re the only saved ones. We are part of millions of believers all over the world who gather in the one and only name that God has given by which man shall be saved – the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. And our desire is that this will be everyone’s part, to know the Lord Jesus in truth, that there is forgiveness and setting free from sins in Him and a Hope on Eternal Life.

“May this blessing of Life be the part of all those who have ears to hear and may God bless those who didn’t go along with the slander, but interceded on our behalf. And may it also become the part of those who were deceived and embittered by those with personal grudges.” – Another accused

“Of this we are guilty, gathering in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, believing His teachings, and living according to His Word, being led by the Holy Spirit. Therefore we leap for joy!” – Also accused
